Desk and chair designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, 1936-39
This desk and chair was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for the S. C. Johnson Administration Building, the headquarters of cleaning products manufacturer Johnson Wax.
Wright‘s furniture was part of an integrated architectural conception that he referred to as ‘Organic Architecture’. ‘It is quite impossible’, he wrote, ‘to consider the building as one thing and its furnishings as another’. Initial designs in heavy sheet aluminium and tubular aluminium were abandoned in favour of cheaper tubular steel.
The OSPAAAL posters in particular reveal the idealistic spirit at the core of the Cuban Revolution, intent on eradicating imperialism globally.
This is a screen printed poster depicting a stylised monkey, with orange hair and a blue face and hands, against a black background.
